John Pack Family History Research
The John Pack Family Association maintains (1) an ongoing family history and genealogical database on this site where you now are, and (2) a library of genealogical research history, research records, and research discussion on our Google Drive site. Anyone who is logged into our Genealogical Database where you are now will also be able to log into our Google Drive library, but at present, login is by invitation; contact David R. Pack at [email protected] for the access link. The library is indexed, and many items, including the research history, are to a great extent searchable.
The John Pack Family Association has an ongoing Genealogical Research Committee. We invite you to contact the committee with questions, suggestions, and comments. Help is needed in updating source citations in the database and in specific research projects (contact Kathleen Skinner).

The Pack Name
English (Kentish): from a medieval personal name, Pack, possibly a survival of the Old English personal name Pacca, although this is found only as a place name element and appears to have died out fairly early on in the Old English period. The Middle English personal name is more likely to be a derivative of the Latin Christian name Paschalis (see Pascal) [or] Jewish (Ashkenazic): metonymic occupational name for a wholesale trader, from German Pack ‘package’ (see Packer).Anglicized form of Dutch Pak.
